    This isn’t the first time the Chinese have done so.
    The Russian’s did a similar maneuver earlier this year (April I believe) north of Japan, as well as Russian interceptor chasing a surveillance aircraft through international airspace in the Baltic Sea (ending with the US plane entering Swedish airspace) and also the many incursions of US Airspace by Russian nuclear bombers in Alaska.

    They are circling, testing response times, watching reactions.

    Drip coffee is that price.

    Atheists, and agnostics for that matter, have been distances themselves from him for years. I did a long time ago.

    Marriage does take work, and today too many people ditch their partner at the first sign of trouble. Working through the marital problems is what makes the difference, which is why this study has me scratching my head. My wife and I fall mostly in the “bad” end. We had previous relationships (no previous marriages or kids though) and we had a small wedding. We did however, make conscious decisions to do things. We are also extremely happy with our marriage and have two beautiful kids now (2.5 years and 5 months old).
    My wife and I had 38 people at our wedding, mostly because we didn’t want to start inviting people who really didn’t affect our lives. The wedding was just close friends and family. The people who actually mattered to us.

    “If genuine, we are appalled by the brutal murder of an innocent American journalist and we express our deepest condolences to his family and friends,” However, there are no plans currently or in the making that will rectify this situation, as any move on the part of this Administration would interfere with the President’s current schedule at the Country Club.

    OldOllie – They can also track sales based on physical copies sold in a region. This kind of statistics has been done for a long time and predates digital sales.

    There are plenty of organization that exist today, that have dark pasts. If they have moved past those pasts by changing for the better, then I can look past them. (Can I use the word “past” anymore in that sentence?) As I would an individual who has done the same.

    And I would agree that “militant” is a poor word choice, like many that are in common usage. But if the word doesn’t apply to atheists, then it also wouldn’t apply to many groups that are commonly referred to as “militant.”

    My comment about fearing it’s comments goes to what many Believers (Christian or otherwise) say about Atheists wanting to remove religious books from the public eye and was a direct criticism of those commentaries.

    It’s just a book and I have no need to fear it. If a hotel wants to keep it in their rooms, or any other private company wants to use said book as a guide to running their business, that’s fine. In the free market, I am free to do or not do business with any person or company I disagree with. And if they wish to remove it, for reasons of their own, then I don’t care either. It is when the militant atheist goes around telling business’ how they should run that I have issue. It is no different than the militant Christian (or militant *insert social group*) doing it.

    Again, most of us don’t care.

    I was in a hotel room two weekends ago. As I was looking for the book with the hotel information in it, I found the Bible. There was no “OH NO! A BIBLE!” It was simply “There’s the Bible,” and I closed the drawer and kept looking. It’s a book.
    I have no need to be afraid of a book. To want to remove a book, is to fear the contains.

    To remove a man’s tongue, doesn’t prove him a liar. It shows that you are afraid of what he might say.

    A Tea Party member tried to voice his issues about the game on the game’s forum and the thread was locked because it is against forum policy to discuss politics.

    So, why make real world politics a central part of the plot then?

    “They sound like a bunch of radical immature bullies that do more harm than they try to stop or justice they seek.”

    Anonymous is made up of many “factions,” each with it’s own ideological bend. Despite what the media like to portray, Anonymous isn’t a uniform, cohesive organization of like-minded people.

    The “documentary” took place in False Bay…

    @Sapper:

    There is a difference between being depressed, ie. sad and depressed, ie. clinical depression. One is a feeling that one can fight, the other is a chemical imbalance in the brain.

    I was agreeing with HOLD THE LINE, Rapunzel and jr23. The costs have to come from somewhere. Increasing the minimum wage doesn’t magically make money appear. This fee, as you put it Rapunzel, makes sure people get the point. So why are you two disagreeing with me?

  • [-1] August 7, 2014 at 3:51pm

    Exactly. How is this any different then simply increase the cost of the menu items to cover the cost?

    “Those are my tax dollars, and I don’t want them funding a religious opinion.”

    Your dollars, not just your “tax dollars,” literally state a religious opinion, so, if we were honest, what is the difference?

    @AmericanWomanFirst – Bingo. Some of us just don’t believe and move on.

  • August 6, 2014 at 10:26am

    I’m not. Not all of us are.

    Washington was a Christian, which is clear when one reads accounts of the time. Though, I have read he didn’t participate in communion (among other things), which I understand to mean he had issues with the rituals, not the faith.

    @Alex – the discount is applied for the prayer, not for the belief. If someone really wants to get the discount, all they have to do is “pray.”
